Hawaii Engraving 1826 "Ruins ...near Kairua" Wlm Ellis
From the 1826 book by William Ellis, "Narrative of a Tour through Hawaii, or Owhyhee;...", published in London by Fisher/Jackson, and engraved by T. Dixon, this print depicts "Ruins of an ancient Fortification, near Kairua", with fine and crisp detail. Two men in western dress and a man in native costume stand beside an ancient stone wall, with additional ruins in the background. Like all the engravings in this series, the sheet measures 5 3/8" by 8 1/2", and this particular print has losses at the bottom edge where it was attached to the binding, and there are very minor stains.
